No point in re-stating all the good points already made by previous reviewers. The Dona Rosa is a class above what you'd ordinarily expect and stands out from the crowd in terms of cleanliness, facilities, location etc.
Spent six fabulous days lounging by the pool in the company of a (mainly) German & Scandinavian clientèle. Some young, some old, all respectful of each others entitlement to a relaxing holiday. House rules like keeping music down ( i.e. not audible much beyond your own terrace ) and coming and going quietly in the evenings were scrupulously adhered to. Suppers out on the terrace or drinks before heading off to one of the local restaurants were an absolute pleasure.
Seventh day ruined for virtually everybody by the arrival of a troupe of drunken Spaniards with learning difficulties, a ghetto-blaster and no qualms about subjecting the neighbourhood to their taste in music. ( It wasn't actually all bad, but, you know, I like to have a choice... )
ANYWAY, if we'd been staying more than one further night we'd have asked to move to the other half of the complex. The trouble would have been that I think that everybody else would have done too ;-) I wonder whether the management would have had the good sense to move them on...
Not as cheap as some of the bungalow complexes in the neighbourhood, but you get 24 hour air-con included in the price ( and that is charged by meters @ 1Euro per 90 minutes nearby ) a generous supply of good quality towels (but bring your own beach/pool towel along) a fairly well equipped kitchen (bring your own chef's knife if you want anything sharp!)
The bus stop @ the Commercial Centre CITA is a stone's throw away with an hourly service to / from the airport that's actually quicker than the communal transfer coaches that stop at every hotel along the way.
